    No it is not enough. Your daughter must execute a quitclaim deed transferring her interest in the property to you. Something to consider, if there is a mortgage on this property and your daughter is on the loan and mortgage, simply quitclaiming her interest in the property to you will not remove her obligations on the loan and mortgage, You and her would then need to contact the lender to see if the lender will allow her name and obligations to be removed from the loan and mortgage. Or you may...

    There are dollar exemptions allowable and your car's value may fall under the exemption. I would definitely seek the opinion of another bankruptcy attorney. My concern is also that it appears your only income is disability and you might not be able to complete a 13 plan. Also I have seen some attorneys convince people to do 13s because their legal fees are much bigger.

    I agree with the above posters. If this is an uncontested matter, you would be surprised how affordable an attorney could be and the reassurance that your divorce will be completed in a professional manner that protects your rights. Divorce unfortunately can often times result in unexpected surprises and consequences. Its worth at the very least to evaluate firms and the firm's philosophy. If you truly are unable to afford an attorney and fit within the income requirements, you may be able to...

    You will need your husband to execute a quit claim deed back to you for his interest under the quit claim deed. I am not sure how you added him (as a joint tenant or as tenants by the entirety), but either way this must be done in order to give you full ownership of the house. How you obtain that quit claim deed from your husband may be negotiated. Illinois is an equitable distribution State so you may not have to split the house or the equity 50/50 with him. The fact that you owned the home...

    You need to initiate a forcible detainer action against him in Court. I would do it as soon as possible because it can take time to evict him - June 3 is not far away. You may want to hire an attorney to do this so you do not waste time. The fees for this can be affordable and getting it done right and quickly is worth it.

    You could lose the property and cause trouble for the others who are part of that trust, however it may be worth defending against the credit card company debt. We have been very successful, but if you are being sued or it's imminent, I would contact an attorney or our firm as soon as possible.

    I agree with the others - you want someone with real estate litigation experience and in Cook County this matter would likely end up in Chancery Court. Depending on what kind of partition it is - there could also be probate issues.

  9. I am losing my deeded parking for 30 days due to condo garage repairs. Is the association responsible for the cost of parking?

    Answered almost 2 years ago.

    1. Anne I-Pin Shaw
    1 lawyer answer

    Most likely not, especially if your parking space, though deeded, is considered a limited common element in your condo associations declarations and by laws. As a limited common element, they have the right to make repairs. You can check your declarations and bylaws or rules to see if there is an allowance for reimbursement. They might be liable if the repairs were due to some negligence of the association. I would need more info, but as a general rule most likely not for the reasons I...

    It is probably void. You must be divorced before you can remarry. You will have to remarry to make the marriage legal. This can be a matter of just going before the Court or Justice of the Peace and doing a quick civil ceremony. You will need a license as well. I am surprised you received one before the divorce was finalized.
